(Newser) – She may have been able to hook up Eliot Spitzer with high-price prostitutes, but she wasn't able to hook herself up with very many votes. Andreia Schwartz, the 35-year-old who ran the Emperors Club VIP, lost her bid to become a Brazilian lawmaker yesterday, garnering just 476 votes in her Legislative Assembly race. Schwartz, whose campaign slogan was "I'm no saint, give me another chance," was deported to Brazil in 2008 after serving time for operating the brothel, reports the New York Daily News. Interestingly enough, an illiterate clown and comedian did win a seat in Brazil's Congress.
